Education is Our Expertise

National Neurotrauma Society 2016 Symposium in Lexington, KY

Amanda Boxtel presenting with Sasha Rabchevsky PhD, Jennifer French Neurotech Network, Susan Harkema PhD, and Lumy Sawaki MD, PhD.

Physical therapist: Craig Newsam PT, DPT. Presentation

Title: Exoskeletons promote effective overground locomotion.

We recognize that keeping people informed with the most up-to-date information is critical in the fast paced world of bionics. We educate the public through:

  • Conducting public presentations, lectures, forums, workshops and webinars on the nature and benefits of exoskeletons and bionic technology for individuals with severe motion impairments. Presenting to audiences brings certain credibility to the foundation and allows us to convey our expertise in the field to interested groups. We are able to literally “walk our talk”.

  • Online reporting to visually track our philanthropy by documenting results and impact through videos and photos of our activities, community outreach programs, R&D projects, and education initiatives.

  • Maintaining our website as a leading information resource on bionic exoskeleton technology. We anticipate expanding to all things bionic in future phases.
